I always think I am going to join this meme or that meme and just like in school, I come to class never prepared.  I do the same thing with the "meme's"
You see, I always mean to do them but never think ahead and decide at midnight to sign up.
Example. I wanted to do a Easter/Springtime tablescape for Thursday. Well, I decided late at night, and of course  we are not supposed to use a flash they say.  NO problem. The flash wouldn't work when I did try and use that was that!
I tried Table Top Tuesday with one of my very favorite hostesses, Marty, and my very INTERESTING table top ended up to be my desk...which was not at all ready for photo's to be taken..and again it was late at night.
But I jumped in anyway! 
THIS should have been my Table Top Tuesday entry..but wasn't?  See the little black and white bunny tucked in there?  From Kristin's Creations.  I tried to link to her but it wouldn't do it.
I think I just might leave him there all Spring.  Maybe summer too..
I read on the couch in the afternoon..all comfy with my pillows..and, as usual forgot to prep and fluff for my picture.  Ah what else is new?? :) 

That's all the decorating the mantel is getting.'s nice.  Sorta!  The little green you see in the face of the clock is Patient Husband's desk lamp...yes..yes...his desk is in the family room!  I get the entire office all to myself..and believe me, I am grateful!  (Bless his heart!)

I dug out that old wagon I bought at a garage sale last summer and put it on the breakfast bar..LOVE IT!

Woe is me!  I feel sooooo left out because nearly everyone I know does those little party thingy's.
I think the fact of the matter is just that I am not organized enough.  Don't think ahead enough!  I mean, I did have seven babies in a row..(does that tell you anything about THINKING AHEAD??)

Can I tell you I am very grateful for those of you who come by and say "howdy" even if I'm not in the "meme's?" 

Lov'n hugs,


  1. I love ya girl..How are you feeling?? You never have let me know how things went..Hugs and smiles Gloria..
    I don't do alot of the meme's use to do them all the time and now I have less time to spend on them..just want to enjoy what life I have left..

  2. I understand the coulda woulda shoulda thing and the meme thing - in fact I have the same disease. Lol sandie

  3. Aw, most wonderful Mona! It's okay. I love attending the parties but sometimes I think I attend to many! ;) Well, we'll just come to see you. I love your arrangement with the bunny and your mantel is gorgeous! I just love it. Your breakfast bar vignette is cute too. I hope you lounging on the sofa doesn't mean you're feeling poorly! Take care and you're always a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  4. Your vignettes are so lovely, Mona. That pic with the sofa is so romantic and charming, I feel like I am looking at a Victoria magazine.Just gorgeous!...Christine

  5. YOu have sooooo many sweet bunnies, Mona. I can count mine on one hand. :-))

  6. Hi Miss Mona,

    Well, I think you should have asked Abby for help. Hey, there's an idea for another Blog "Ask Abby". Just what you need - 3 Blogs. Giggle.

    Heaps of Hugs

    Hi Abby.

  7. I DID ask Abby, she told me to "shove off" ...I'm teasing! Abby always helps me..her poor fur has been soaked with tears lately... :) She always teases me out of any dark mood..which is seldom..honest.!

  8. hi mona! talk about not being organized! i just realized i don't have your blog on my sidebar and haven't been here in ages. i am adding it now so i can keep up with your posts. i love your decorations and that wagon is way too cute! joyce

  9. I don't "meme" either. In all honesty, I don't know how to say the word out loud!
    Your flowers are beautiful. It doesn't take a meme to see THAT.

  10. You have the CUTEST home, Mona....I love these photos...I love your flowered sofa...I love all those cute bunnies around...
    and, I have a bunch of faux daisies SOMEwhere and after seeing yours on the mantel, I am going to find them and put some on MY mantel. :))
    I love how we all get ideas from each other...
    And, just so you know, I offered up a prayer for your sweet daughter this morning, that this disease is being totally taken away from her...forever.
    GOD can do that !! :)

  11. Hi Mona- I don't do the linky thing either. I just don't seem to have the time..but once in a while I do a tablescape or something just for myself. Maybe I'm a loner and not a joiner?;>) Everything looks lovely there, though...and you love it and that is the really important thing, isn't it? xo Diana

  12. What a sweet post my beautiful Mona. Your statement 'bout thinkin' ahead and havin' seven kids all in a row cracked me up. Girl ya make my day!!!

    Please don't try to change, we love you just the way you are.

    God bless and have yourself a delightful day sweetie!!! :o)

  13. Your tablescape is gorgeous!!! I have a hard time joining the parties because I can't figure out the technological part of it:).



  14. Just lovely, warm n charming - love all your bunnies n decor - thank you for sharing such beauty :)

  15. You are the sweetest lady. Your warm loving home says it all. Me to!!! I love the coffee table and sofa photo, it just needed you lying back on the sofa in the picture (With the book.) Your little cart in the kitchen, with the bunny is just perfect.
    Still praying for you and the family.

  16. I think your home looks charming. I would love to stop in and visit.Everything you have done looks just great. Enjoy your days.

  17. I always get a warm and fuzzy feeling when I stop by to visit you! Your decorations are so charming and it's so obvious that your cottage is filled with love and happiness!! Have a great weekend.

    Big Hugs,
    Susan and Bentley
